Fruku is a project by Freek Heldens (1997).
As a child, I was always very interested in electronics. When something broke, I usually opened it up to take a peek inside. This natural curiosity mixed with a love for music grew out into a big interest and admiration for electronic music instruments and eventually into synth DIY.
In 2022, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Music & Technology at HKU (Hoge School voor de Kunsten Utrecht). My specialization during the bachelor was Creative System Design, focusing mainly on hardware development.
Now I design synth (DIY) products for people who love sound devices, synthesizers and other innovative audio equipment.
When I am not busy developing synthesizers, I enjoy spending time with my dog Joep, going to techno & IDM parties, and camping in the Ardennes with my girlfriend.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for questions, collaborations or chit-chat.
